Webinar: Intervention Strategies to Address Trauma
In collaboration with the IDEA Partnership and the Center for School Mental Health the Quality and Evidence Base Practice (QEBP) Practice Group will host a webinar on Wednesday May 22 from 1:00-2:30 Eastern Time titled
“Practical Intervention Strategies to Address Impact of Trauma in Schools” that will feature two presentations.
The first presentation will feature Dr. Marleen Wong, Associate Dean and Clinical Professor, Director of Field Education School of Social Work University of Southern California and CSMH Expert Advisory Panel Member, who will share updated information on utilizing Psychological First Aid in the School Setting. Dr. Wong will provide an overview of Psychological First Aid: Listen Protect Connect, Model and Teach, a five phase strategy that helps students and staff to process a troubling experience which is interfering with the student's ability to learn and to fully participate in the classroom. There will also be a discussion on how to modify this model for Psychological First Aid with adults/peers in the school setting.
The second presentation will feature Dr. Eric Rossen, Director of Professional Development and Standards with the National Association of School Psychologists, a Nationally Certified School Psychologist, licensed psychologist, and co-author of Supporting and Educating Traumatized Students: A Guide for School-Based Professionals. Dr. Rossen will discuss the core components of trauma-sensitive schools and the importance of integrating these initiatives into existing efforts. This presentation will also describe how schools can effectively utilize school-based mental health professionals and empower all educators to support students with trauma histories. Specific examples of practical, classroom-based strategies will be provided to illustrate how educators can supplement more intensive direct interventions.
